About the Conference

Welcome to DFNE 2022,  the third International Conference on Discrete Fracture Network Engineering. We are excited to present the important advances that have occurred since the previous conference, as DFNE approaches are broadly applied in engineering, geology, and geophysics, providing practical solutions for rock mass characterization, geomechanics, and fluid flow and transport.

DFNE 2022 will be held June29 through July 1 following Santa Fe 2022 (June 26-29) at the
